Your Photos: Ready to Go!

When the rush of your wedding is past, and you return from your honeymoon, you'll find the world still spinning on. There's so much to do, and so much has changed! In the bustle of sending thank-you cards, making an inventory of your gifts, and getting back to work--not to mention getting used to your new marriage!--the last thing your wedding photos should be is a hassle.

I can take anywhere from 900 to 1,200 photos at a wedding. That's a lot to go through! Many photographers leave it to the brides to go through the plethora of images in search of the ones they like best. The fact is, most brides never get around to it. Despite how much they may want to enjoy their photos, they just don't want another big chore!

An Engagement to Remember

Engagement Portraits are a great way to celebrate your relationship and the anticipation of your wedding day. They can also make it easy to personalize things like invitations and thank-you cards. But most of all, it's just wonderful to have beautiful photos of you and the love of your life.

I Don't Mess Around with Your Moment!

... that's for you to do!

It's a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, and I know you're putting everything you've got into it. So let go, be yourself, seize the moment--and I'll capture it for you!

I believe my job isn't just to take awesome photos--which I do--it's also to make your day flow that much more smoothly and stress-free. That's why I do things a little differently than a lot of the wedding photographers you'll run into.

The Secret Life of Wedding Photographers

From the ISPWP blog:
What do Wedding Photographers Really Do?
It comes up a lot. Usually when I’m standing in the buffet line for dinner, or when there’s a slow time during the day when I’m not taking pictures.
“Yessir, I am, and I absolutely love it.”
“Well I don’t doubt it. You’re doing a great job out there. It must be great to work only one day a week!”
I hear similar stories from other wedding photographers. There seems to be a lot of misconceptions regarding what wedding photographers actually do all week.
